Walk Through A Victorian Christmas Masterpiece At Körner’s Folly, The Most Unusual House In North Carolina
Walk into a Victorian time capsule this year with a visit to the most eclectic and unusual house in all of North Carolina. All year long, this circa 1880 home is open for self-guided tours Wednesday through Sunday and visitors are enthralled by the architectural elements and the furnishings – which are original to the home. But during the holidays, the home is adorned from floor to ceiling with period Christmas decorations and it’s positively charming.
